Fungus weevil by melvynyeo Fungus weevil by melvynyeo
Quote [link]

Anthribidae is a family of beetles also known as fungus weevils. The antennae are not elbowed, may occasionally be longer than the body and thread-like, and can be the longest of any members of Curculionoidea. As in the Nemonychidae, the labrum appears as a separate segment to the clypeus, and the maxillary palps are long and projecting.

Most anthribids feed upon fungi or decaying plant matter, and the larvae feed within dead wood. Some species of Choraginae feed upon seeds, while unusually, Anthribus feeds upon soft scales.

Wish I knew what kind of anthribid this was... I really don't know the group as well as I'd like to.
